'The unexamined life is not worth living' - Socrates
Continued from Part II
We are all our ancestors and they are all us. Our physical bodies are merely the current guardians, the vessels that carry an essence which is undying.

There are three areas where the implications for this kind of understanding are profound - Ego, Death and Happiness.
